Ah, yes, it's 5GB. Now I feel incredibly stupid. I am very well aware of the 1 
gigabyte limit.

Hmm, the e2fsck fails. It says something that the filesystem size according to 
the superblock differs from the physical size of the device. Is this because 
the partition is larger than 1GB? I thought the e2fsck had nothing to do with 
the ext2fs translator.
